REACh: Reading and Understanding Exposure Scenarios

Exposure Scenarios - Part 1

“Conditions of use”, “extended safety data sheet” and “exposure scenarios” are just some of the new terms with which plant managers, health and safety officers and commercial users will have to familiarise themselves.

The REACH Regulation stipulates that usages of hazardous substances must be identified via a safety assessment, recorded in terms of exposure scenarios and communicated along the supply chain.

Since 2011, these exposure scenarios have increasingly become part of day-to-day life in the workplace. We will present the legal and practical background and implications of this regulation.


Your benefit

The participants are informed about the legal background and significance of exposure scenarios. They will also receive a detailed overview of the contents and the creation of exposure scenarios.



  • Legal background to exposure scenarios
  • Definition, structure and content of exposure scenarios
  • How to create exposure scenarios (use descriptors, relevant parameters, data, strategy)
  • Use and communication of exposure scenarios along the supply chain
  • Significance of exposure scenarios in day-to-day practical work (are the conditions of use prevailing in the workplace covered by the exposure scenario?)

The topic "The extended safety data sheet (eSDS) - Communication in the supply chain with exposure scenarios"  will be handled in the corresponding training course.


Target audience
